|In Despair asks: |
My hair is naturally a strawberry blonde, and I have been having it dyed blonde for about 10 years. I recently decided to go for a dramatic change and asked my colourist to dye it reddy brown. I have since decided that the colour does not suit me, and I really want to get back to blonde, but my hairdresser insists that it will go ginger if she strips it out. Please could you advise how I can get back to my original colour? I am desperate!!

There are few products in the market to help you to resolve your problem, those should be done professionally of course, ask your Colour Technician for Wipe out by Indola or Modullat by Schwarzkopf these products help to remove most of the dark pigments. After the removal of the colour perhaps you should consider having some high lights using some colours similar to your natural colour.

I am 20 years old, and for the last five years, I have been lightening my hair. At some points it has been very blonde, at others, more streaked and contrasted. I am pretty sure that my natural colour is fairly mixed - mostly medium/dark brown. I have always been complimented on how natural and well done my hair colour looks, because I have never used an all over colour, which means my roots are never very noticeable. Though, the truth is, I have never coloured my hair professionally, and the products I have used have been; Garnier lightening spray, Garnier multi-lights kit, sun-in, and beach blonde by John Freida. I think I have been lucky to achieve such a nice colour - a golden/honeyish tone generally. However, I am aware as I get older that my hair is getting darker, and am starting to worry at the build up of all these products in my hair. Over the last year, I held back a bit with the lightening, and my darker natural colour came through, but then a few months ago I decided to go lighter again. I used Garnier multi lights, and then sun-in a few weeks later (I know not very sensible) and the result was a bit brassier than I am used to, obviously because I had grown darker. I am at the stage now where, I want much blonder hair, but am very confused as to what you can and can not colour on top of - can you colour/highlight/lighten on top of sun-in treated hair? At the moment it is a dark golden tone, and lighter at the front. My hairdresser said that if I use permanent colour on it, there will be breakage, but said that the condition was not terrible. But does
this mean that if I go to a colourist they are going to be reluctant to make it blonder? Is there anything I can (relatively) safely do at home - as I trust myself and have never had any disasters yet!

There could always be the day that you can make the disaster! It takes a few years for a good stylist to become a Colourist. So far you have been very lucky but believe me you are hiding to a disaster zone. Sun-in is a very complicated product and not very versatile as it its very difficult to con-vine with other colourants plus it is a non very friendly product with your hair condition, I would advise you to go to a good salon in your area and book and appointment with the colourist explain the problem and ask to have a strand test that would determine what could happen with the colour and condition.

I really short hair and use loads of products on it, now it is really dry and I get white flakes falling out of it, and still my hair is really short, I was wondering if this was product build up and if I should grow my hair longer to combat this problem in some way?
|Answered By: |
I would need to have a look at your hair and scalp to give you a properdiagnosis. It is possible that it is a product build up that is resulting in you seeing these flakes but growing your hair would not make any difference! Ask someone to have a look at your scalp and see if it looks flaky. If it does, stop using hair styling products next time you shampoo and see ifthis is it. If it is then change your styling products, if it is the same then change your shampoo
